OK. If that works, then patches #5 and #10 are Reviewed-by: Laszlo Ersek <ler...@redhat.com> as they are in this series. (This keeps boggling my mind -- I honestly wonder whether responsibility *can* stop at the submitter, as opposed to "catching up" with the whole project --, so I'm pretty sure I'll forget about this interpretation again, and you'll have to remind me again. Please bear with me. :( ) > I refuse any responsibility for verifying the origin of code that > others contribute, and I'm sure your workload doesn't allow it either. It's definitely not that I'd take any responsibility for origin verification; I just figured that contributors could (or should) semi-formally support such efforts, *should* someone in the future feel like verifying the origin.
